The Sustainability is partnering with The Joinery and The Restoration Collective in May to talk about sustainable buildings and take a group tour of The Joinery!
The Joinery is a sustainable building project, located at 640 N. Denver Ave. in North Tulsa. The 3,180-square-foot, two-story, brick residence is the first in Oklahoma to seek Living Building Challenge™ certification from the International Living Future Institute. The Joinery’s goals are:
To connect neighbors to food, nature and community in an urban area north of downtown.
To build a residence that is self-sufficient and remains within the resource limits of its site.
To serve as a model of innovative, sustainable design in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and beyond.
To be a certified Living Building, The Joinery has to meet 20 Imperatives outlined by the Living Future Institute, requiring thorough documentation. Additionally, the finished building has to prove performance over 12 consecutive months.
The project is lead by Jones Design Studio, Building Culture, and Anchor Home. Construction began in December 2018.
